Newest Issue of Stone Canoe Released, Number 7

Are you a fan of arts, literature, and social commentary?  Then you’re in luck because the Stone Canoe journal has released its newest issue, Number 7, filled with unique new content!  This year’s publication features over 60 artists contributing to a collection of poetry, fiction, drama, nonfiction, interviews, review, and visual arts.  Syracuse University Press is proud to distribute such a refined journal showcasing the work of writers and visual artists with a connection to Upstate New York.

Since its conception, Stone Canoe has expanded its range to include articles on technology, film, video, and music, while maintaining its traditional focus on poetry, short fiction and nonfiction, drama and visual arts.  The annual journal is published each spring by University College of Syracuse University and edited by Robert Colley.  Stone Canoe, Number 6, won the Gold Medal in the Anthology category of the IPPY Awards last June.  Visit the Stone Canoe website for additional content, along with e-book versions of current and past issues.

Belated Congratulations to IPPY Gold Medalist, Stone Canoe

For 15 consecutive years, the Independent Publisher Book Awards contest has successfully united independent authors and publishers to celebrate the top books in various categories.  It’s safe to say that the 16th Annual Award ceremony, held on June 4th in New York, was equally as successful, if not more so. According to the Independent Publisher website, “This year’s entry totals are the biggest ever, with 4,813 print book entries, 390 e-book entries, and an average category size of 50.”

Syracuse University’s Stone Canoe: A Journal of Arts, Literature and Social Commentary, Number 6, edited by Robert Colley, won the IPPY Gold Metal for the Anthologies category. This 2012 edition features the work of over 100 artists and writers focusing on poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, drama and visual arts (shown below). It has also expanded its range to include articles on technology, film, video and music. Additional content is available at
